A study done by researchers at the University of Michigan claims that eating a hot dog could take 36 minutes off your life.
According to the peer-reviewed study published by the journal Nature Food, researchers claim that eating one hot dog can take 36 minutes off of a person's life.
In contrast, researchers found that eating nuts could add 26 minutes to a person's life.
Researchers looked at 5,853 different foods consumed by Americans and measured their effects in minutes of healthy life gained or lost.
Researchers also found that if humans substituted only 10% of their daily caloric intake from beef and processed meat for fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and selected seafood they could add 48 minutes to their life per day.
